This was a memorable year, teaching first grade. A highlight was this year’s Creative Writing Festival held in May. The students brought their parents for dessert and readings. Each First Grade Friend got to read an original story and sit in “The Author’s Chair.” A proud moment for the teacher, students, and parents!

We also had a great trip to the beach this Spring, complete with dirt cups as a snack!
Here I am with Sandy the 2nd grade teacher and digging through a bucket of sea treasures!
Eating her dirt cup! YUM.
The Circus is held in May. This year for the first graders’ solo act they were sailors.
In May we do a all school circus and this year the first graders’ solo act was a sailor routine.
This next school year I will be taking on the clowns as the Clown Coach. Looking forward to the new adventure.
And the boys got to do the traditional “Muscle Men” act. They are always a favorite. Can you guess how much he’s lifting in this picture?
Then he was shot out of a canon, only to be saved by his mother putting out the fuse in a pitcher of water. 😉
A wonderful conclusion to my year was getting to meet THE Skippyjon Jones in our local parade. He is a siamese can that thinks he is a Chihuahua.
Featured in the Skippyjon Jones books by Judy Schachner. A personal favorite thanks to Kate Norem.
